      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

replica mount --Prices?

Question

I caught a nice eye on LOW a few years back and said I was going to do a replica mount but never did. Now I am going to do it.

What do you think of the quality?

How much will it cost?

Are some brands better than others?

Thanks

Hitman

I think a replica runs about $12-$15 depending on who does it. I think mine ran about $13 a inch at Artistic Anglers.

I highly recomend Artistic Anglers in Duluth. I have had replicas by them and their work is awesome. Their painter does the best work I have ever seen.

One of our FMers Outdooran works there and he knows his stuff.

I did a walleye rep a year later also and I love it and would highly recommend it. I did mine from Fibretec in Nisswa and I am very happy with it. The cost was in that 12 to 15 range. Both places will do great work. Always remember to send a pic or specify where you caught the fish.

The biggest difference you will see is in the painting. Some look "fake" or "Plastic" and others look just like the one you caught.

Check out shows, ask for references of people who had the same type fish or same fish from same place as where yours was from.

Hitman, My son had a 32" done a few years back from LOW also.Artistic Anglers out of Duluth did a great job. They have a special at the Sportsman show in March. $10/inch regular price was $12/inch at the time. DrJ.
